DevJourney Podcast

#151 Chris Coyier from ceramics to CSS-Tricks and CodePen

Chris took us from playing on his first C64 to his bachelor of arts in ceramics and back to web development. We talked about the different positions he held along the way and how they slowly but surely led him toward web development. We brushed over the creation and recreation of CSS-Tricks, learning in the open and what a good day looks like.

  4. 378: Lee Martin
  5. 377: Jase Smith

I will randomly do the podcast as a video some weeks and call it CodePen Radio on TV! Here’s Adam Kuhn and I doing one of those videos. You’ll see a new intro animation on it that Adam himself did.

ShopTalk Show

Dave and I are six months away from doing this weekly for 10 years!! Again, some recent shows:

528: Alex and Andrew on Working in an Agency ShopTalk

Alex and Andrew join us from the Discord to talk about working on client sites and branding at Traina. How do they set up WordPress for development? What's the incentive to invest in tooling? And the benefits of using CodePen as a knowledge library for your brain.
  1. 528: Alex and Andrew on Working in an Agency
  2. 527: Shaky Foundations, Tricky A11y Topics, & Dependency Follow Up
  3. 526: Web Components, Testing, and Database Seeding
  4. 525: Cache Bustin, Twitter Embeds, and Analytics Weirdness
  5. 524: Package Security with Feross Aboukhadijeh from Socket

Some of the shows have been centered around a series called JavaScript in 2021.

The biggest change around ShopTalk is our Patreon + Discord which has been very awesome.
